Bringing you real life stories of people taking steps to transform global food system
Why do you need to hear from the real?
When people hear real-life stories, they tend to take more interest and get encouraged to take the required action. We will be bringing you more such encouragement with real-life stories from various individuals who will share their journey towards transforming the global food system in various ways. In addition, we will learn from these individuals about how we can contribute to building back better.
What are you going to hear about? The topics include but are not limited to the following:
- How can you be part of a sustainable food system?
- Problems of factory/intensive farming.
- Benefits of plant-based foods through individuals.
- What is antimicrobial resistance (AMR), its impacts on people, animals and the environment?
The current intensive farming and the global food system
The current intensive farming system is a hurdle towards better ecosystems and its rich biodiversity. In contrast, the global food system is the biggest driver of the destruction of the natural world. We all are aware that the health of animals, people, plants, and the environment is interconnected. One Health is an approach that recognizes the interlinkage between people's health, the health of animals, and our shared environment.
We can transform our food system to be more sustainable and kinder to animals and significantly improve the overall health of animals and humans.
By making our voices heard, supporting high welfare, demanding stronger antibiotics regulations in farming, holding the companies accountable and eating more plant-based foods, we can continue to push for policies that protect animals, people, and the planet and move towards FOOD REVOLUTION.
Developing a sustainable food system
World Animal Protection wants to develop sustainable food systems by increasing the demand for plant-based foods, reducing reliance on farmed animals, and making higher welfare production systems—with more space, fewer antibiotics, healthier growth, and more natural environments.
